Industrial Soundproof Curtains
Did you know that industrial noise can cause hearing loss at levels as low as 85 decibels, the level of city traffic noise? Keep your workplace ambient noise below 85 db and avoid costly audio metric testing and work force training. Using Steel Guard sound control curtains in your facility can help significantly reduce workplace noise to acceptable and harmless levels in addition to other employee safety equipment.
Why You Should Use Noise Cancelling Curtains in Industrial Environments
High noise levels in the workplace often lead to:
- Loss of concentration
- Reduced productivity
- Long-term hearing loss
Each of these can result in serious employee injury and harm to your business, culminating in lost wages or even devastating lawsuits. Using the right protective measures such as sound insulating curtains, you can avoid these issues while providing employees with a safer environment.

Flexible Configuration of Industrial Noise Reduction Curtains
Sound dampening curtains can be manufactured from ½ PSF (pounds per square foot) to 2 ½ PSF surface protection, while our most common version is our 1PSF SCC-10 Sound Shield™ curtain. Extreme duty Sound Shield™ curtains can reduce certain frequencies noise levels by up to 61 decibels. Track-mounted Sound Shield™ industrial sound absorbing curtains can slide in out of use in 54-inch wide panels that can be manufactured up to a height of 25 feet.
The panels can be fitted with our durable .160-gage work-view PVC window for greater visibility.
Sound Shield™ industrial noise control curtains start with a bottom layer of quilted fiberglass, followed by a layer of chemical-resistant and waterproof coated vinyl, then a third layer of soundproof, mass-loaded vinyl sandwiched in between yet another layer of quilted fiberglass, and topped off with a layer of coated vinyl.
All outer edges of the panels are sewn with a double lock stitch using rot resistant nylon thread. Two-inch Velcro attachments are used to hold the panels together.
